When the spirits make mistakes

Memoirs of Krakpor

When the spirits make mistakes

Like I promised I bring you an event that took place in my teen days. A theft was discovered and all fingers pointed to Alex who was known as the street thief. Everybody knew that he was a confirmed thief because he has been caught on several occasions. Our parents always warned us to stay away from him so as not to corrupt us but it was difficult. Alex had other talents; he was a good footballer and also can defend you when it comes to bullying.

On this day, we all knew that the stolen item, a video game console known as “Game Boy” was with him but he refused to admit it. After hours of begging Alex to confess, we (10 of us excluding Alex) came to the confusion- we must go to a witch doctor to cast a confession spell on him. Alex agreed and we set out to meet Baba Igbino whose house was like five houses away from the crime scene. Baba Igbino did not waste time as soon as we told him the mission and paid him the consultation fee. He sat on the floor and threw his cowries, spoke in some inaudible tongues and then lifted his head. He pointed to Alex.

Alex immediately disagreed with the verdict claiming that Baba Igbino was referring to his chicken that he stole the previous week and not this game console. He said we should go and meet a neutral witch doctor. We all came out of the house pondering on where to go next when we saw Atunen coming our way. I called out to him because I knew he was an expert in such matters as his uncle was a witch doctor.  In no time we were already on our way heading to meet another witch doctor some 100 meters from the crime scene.

We knew that we were in the right place because of the environment because of its spooky feel and foul atmosphere.  We told him our mission and paid him the consultation fee which was twice what Baba Igbino collected. The high fee meant that he was authentic. We all watched him run like a mad man around one tree in the premises until he pointed his fingers towards the culprit.

We were amazed. Is this man alright?

“Epa, you sure say na who the spirit tell you? (Elderly one, are you it was him that the spirit revealed to you?)” I asked him in broken English

“You this small boy, na me you dey ask that kain yeye question? (Am I the one you are asking this silly question, you little boy?)” He shouted with his heavy Bini accent “Una want make I cause una here? (Do you want me to lay a curse you all?)” He further threatened.

Alex no longer became the focus because the witch doctor had pointed at Atunen who was never at the crime scene and was the one who brought us to him.

The whole shrine was in total shambles by the time we left the place when we demanded a refund and the witch doctor claimed that money for the gods do not have a refund.

See you next week.
